Welcome to Babylonstoren. Dating back to 1692, Babylonstoren is a historic Cape Dutch farm near Franschhoek that boasts one of the best-preserved farmyards in the Cape Winelands.
Beloved for its magnificent garden that is laid out over 3,5 hectares (8 acres), the garden is divided into 15 sections that comprise fruit, vegetables, berries, bees for pollinating, indigenous plants, fragrant lawns, a prickly pear maze, ducks and chickens, and more.
A secluded path runs along the stream where thousands of clivias flower in spring. The garden also boasts a plethora of trees of historical and botanical import.
Every aspect of Babylonstoren – including the contemporary Farm Hotel & Spa, the Farm Shop and Bakery – are led by the ever-changing tapestry and botanical diversity of the garden.
Break away from normal life and experience a true sense of relaxation, where we grow our own produce, touched by the sun and nurtured by hand. Take a splash in our spa and pool area to help you relax and unwind.
